HER-2 Negative Breast Cancer Market

HER-2 Negative Breast Cancer Market Is Expected To Witness Significant Growth Due To Increasing Prevalence Of HER-2 Negative Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women worldwide. Based on the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER-2) status, breast cancer is classified into two major types- HER-2 positive and HER-2 negative breast cancer. HER-2 negative breast cancer accounts for around 70% of all breast cancer cases wherein the cancer cells do not have higher than normal levels of the protein HER-2. The treatment landscape for HER-2 negative breast cancer has evolved significantly over the past decade with the approval of CDK 4/6 inhibitors and PARP inhibitors.

HER-2 negative breast cancer can be treated through surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy based on the stage and other factors of the cancer. Targeted therapies that block estrogen production or inhibit estrogen from fueling cancer cell growth such as aromatase inhibitors are widely used for the treatment of hormone receptor-positive HER-2 negative breast cancer. Companies are conducting extensive research to develop new targeted and immune therapies with improved efficacy and tolerability to treat various subtypes of HER-2 negative breast cancer.

The global HER-2 Negative Breast Cancer Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 13,873.7 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
